This MS Windows®-based process control loop simulation program enables the user to practice various controller tuning procedures and view the effect of both set point changes and disturbances. The realistic interface resembles a typical process operator’s workstation, therefore requires a minimal user learning curve. The program provides a choice of control strategies (feedback, cascade, ratio, feedforward, override, decoupling and model-based control) and typical controller configuration options. Predefined process models and process control loops illustrate characteristics of typical temperature, flow, pressure and liquid level control loops as well as demonstrate real-world problems such as mistuned controllers and sticky valves. The BUILDER program, which accompanies PC-ControLAB, allows for user creation of custom process models by graphically selecting, connecting and paramaterizing function blocks from a library of over 20 different blocks. Each process model can contain up to 120 function blocks. A tutorial, user’s manual and a set of pre-planned laboratory exercises is also included on the CD. (Requires Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, NT or XP and 6 MB free space on the hard disk.)For self study, this program makes an excellent companion to Basic and Advanced Regulatory Control: System Design and Application, 2nd Edition.Click here for a Free Demo of PC-ControLAB Release 3.Also available is a site license for up to 8 users entitled PC-ControLAB Release 3 for Windows Site License.
